How do I remove the DVD Drive on a Toshiba Satellite 1955-S805 laptop and where can I buy a new one

To remove the drive you will need to remove the small screw on the bottom of the laptop that holds the drive in place. Look for a CD symbol near a screw aproximatly 6 inches in from the DVD drive center. Remove that screw and the DVD should slide out. The best place to get a replacement drive is Ebay Do a search for the model and DVD and you should see many for sale

Where is the location & how to remove the hard drive for toshiba satelite P15-S470


The hard drive is located under the CD/DVD drive. Before you start taking apart the laptop, remove the battery and unplug the AC power.

1. You have to remove the CD/DVD drive. Turn the laptop over. Remove one screw right above the dive and slide the drive out of the laptop.
2. When the CD/DVD drive is removed, you'll see a metal plate. The metal plate is secured by 4 screws. Remove them and lift up the plate from the bay. The hard drive is located right under the plate.
3. After you remove the plate, you'll see the hard drive. The hard drive also secured by 4 screws. Remove the screws, slide the hard dire to disconnect it from the connector on the moterboard and lift it up.
4. You have to transfer the brackets from the old hard drive to a new hard drive. Also, if there is a foil shielding around the old hard drive, you'll have to transfer it to a new hard drive too.

I need a replacement optical drive for the Toshiba A45-s151. I've googled for an hour and can't find a simple list of possible replacements. Any ideas where to look? Thanks in advance.

The "good" news is that laptop CD/DVD devices are "generic", i.e., just buy a new one, and it will fit, once you remove the face-plate from the old drive-tray, and connect it to the new drive-tray.

However, replacing a CD/DVD device in a laptop is not a "beginner-level" do-it-yourself project.
Take the computer to a computer-store, and pay them to disassemble your laptop,
remove the old drive, connect the replacement drive, reassemble your laptop, and test it.

Removing DVD-drive on Travelmate 230

Eject the tray and turn the laptop off, close the lid and turn the laptop over.
take note of the positioning of the DVD and look for one screw that will be holding the DVD rom in place, once you have located the screw and removed it the DVD will just slide out of it's compartment and you will be ready to replace it.

Good luck.

there is usually one screw holding the dvd drive in, lay the PC closed, upside down, and lay the replacement drive in line with the old drive, this may tell you the exact location, or where to look (it may be under another removable panel, once the one screw is removed, the drive should slide out, if you eject the drawer, it is easier to remove after you pull out the screw, most have a manual eject (Pinhole in front by eject button) insert a straightened paper clip straight in. let me know if this helps or you need more info

HP Compaq nx9010 CD drive replacement

You are correct.
The screws for the dvd drive is under the keyboard.
there should be 2 tabs one above the f4 and the other above f12 take a regular head screw driver put it where those tabs are and gently pull down towards the touchpad and the keyboard should come up easily.
Now under that keyboard in the center you will see a opening and inside that opening you will see 1 philip head screw remove that by turning counter clockwise.
Right below where you removed that screw you will see another opening which has another philps head screw in it.
Remove that screw counter clockwise and the dvd rom should pull straight out with ease.
To put it back together just reverse the steps.
If you need further assistance do not hesitate to ask.
